The way I understood it, by having a remote control (that can be 
removed from the machine) the monitor's settings could be setup 
initially, then the remote put away, so the user(s) couldn't mess up 
the display (either in a school setting, or possibly graphics that 
needed to be exact, etc). But that might have just been a side benefit.
